 Happy Spring, babes! I'm so excited for sun and relaxing! I finally got my 'spring break' of sorts this week and I cannot be more excited to do nothing at all and sleep for days. Anyways, today I'll be showing you guys my current everyday look! Every time I wear this I always feel like I'm having a really good makeup day so yay!

Like always, I start with skincare. I use the Garnier Clean+ Balacing Daily Exfoliator and afterwards, the Elf Daily Hydration Moisterizer. This is a really important part of the look because it creats a blank, clean canvas for you makeup to just glide on to. You don't just want a good makeup day, you also want a good skin day. Of course, it's up to you to choose what skincare products work best for you and your skin type.

 Onto the makeup now; I always start with the face first so let's talk highlighter. You guys know I've been obsessed over the Anastasia Beverly Hills Glow Kit and for a very good reason: it's amazing. I normally use a mix for Starburst, Crushed Pearl and Mimosa which, as you can see, are my most used in the palette. I use an angle brush to go over my cheek bones, my tip of my nose, my chin and a bit in my cupid's bow on my lips. 

And because I wanted to mix it up a bit and try something new, I decided to go over to the Elizabeth Arden palette I own which has this beautiful blush shade called Romantic Rose. This light pink shade is perfect for spring so anything that looks like that is perfect for a look like this. 

For concelear I use the same one I always use which is the Sephora Bright Future Gel Serum Concelear, add the yellow shade from the Wet n' Wild Coverall Correcting Palette in my darkest circles and then lock it all in place with the Milani Prep+Go+Set Powder using a flat foundation brush. And let me tell you, this combo really does work.

 For the eyes, I was super excited to try out my very first colourpop purchase, this eyeshadow in the shade Central Perk. I popped some of this maroon color in the crease and the outer corner of the eye using the Elf Eyeshadow "C" Brush.

I love to use different colors from different palettes, so I picked up some of the color "Dreamer" from my Tartelette palette as a transition shade. Then, picked up my Naked3 palette and added some "Factory" for the lid and used my finger to pop some "Mugshot" right in the middle for some dimension. To add some light to my inner corners, I add the lightest shade from both palettes while also brushing some under my eyebrows to make them stand up. If you didn't understand any of that and you don't own any of these palettes I just mentioned, let me break it down for you: I added a brown shade in the inner edges of the colourpop shade, used a purple-y/brown shade for the lid and then added a glittery/metallic brown/green shade in the middle of the lid and then grabbed some of that excess from the brush to use as a lower liner. Got it? Good!

My mascara of choice hasn't changed at all, it's still the Sephora Full Action Extreme Effect Mascara

For my brows, I've been using a new product that I've been loving! It's the L'Oreal Brow Stylist Definer in Dark Brunette. I didn't know I was struggling so much before with my brows before picking this up and trying it for the first time! Everyone needs to check this thing out, seriously. 

Last but definitely not least, my lipstick of choice lately is the (mini version) Marc Jacobs Le Marc Lip Creme Lipstick in Kiss Kiss Bang Bang 216. This has a matte finish and is a bit drying but it lasts a long time with little to no touch ups.

 And there's the complete look! I did this for school the first time and I was just so amazed by how bright my skin looked and how good of a makeup look I was having! What do you think? What's your go-to everyday look? Let's chat all about it in the comments below! See you soon, babes~

    1. it's great because it has all of the must-have matte shades you need for any look. Perfect for transition and smudging colors. But if you're looking for completed looks, I'd go for the tarte in the bloom palette!
